Personal information is collected under the authority of the Income Tax Act and is used to establish and validate the identity and contact information of directors, trustees, or like officials of the organization.

This information may be used to assess the risk of registration with respect to the obligations and requirements as outlined in the Act and the common law. The SIN is collected under subsection 237 of the Act and is used for identification purposes.
Personal information may be disclosed to the organization and/or its representatives and other third parties under the disclosure provisions of section 241 of the Act.
